Abstract

The aim of this study is to outline and explain students' responsibility for learning by investigating the importance of the constructivist self-regulating learning approach to information technology student learning at a tertiary institution in Australia. A research model was developed from the fundamental of the constructivist self-regulating learning principles and theories to evaluate tertiary students learning. Six factors (intrinsic motivation, mental representations, levels of understanding, developmental constraints on learning and reflection to stimulate learning) were identified. A total of 147 students participated in this research between 2005 and 2007. The learning environment and assessment tasks were carefully developed to be aligned with the constructivist self-regulating learning approach. Results suggest that constructivist self-regulating learning is an important approach for Information Technology students. The overall results also suggest that there are strong relationships between all constructivist self-regulating factors. Student interview feedback also suggests that the constructivist self-regulating approach is best suited for research-based assignments.
